Gamers really do have a look about us. Not sure what it is.
When I went back to school for another degree I was living in a house that had been divided up into apartments. Some folks moved into the other upstairs apartment.
Guy asks me if i play dungeons and dragons because I look like a gamer. He says he's thinking about running a champions naruto game and handed me the character sheet.
Look over sheet for 15 seconds. " I don't know if you want to clone Rock Lee. Has he ever actually WON a fight?"
DOesn't really matter for the magus in this conversation. The only thing the trip property does after the clarification a looong time ago is let you drop it instead of going prone if you miss your CMB roll by 10 or more.
If you cast true strike, then miss a CMB by 10, your next spell should be expeditious retreat anyway.
You're completely missing the entire polemic of the deniers.
You can't take them seriously or show why his points are wrong because they're not actually making any. There is no argument. There is only the vague, illusory appearance of one. like trying to bullrush an illusion somewhere: accepting the premise that its there and expecting it to act like a real argument is simply unrealistic. Its not a real argument, so it doesn't act like one.
Look at the repeated insistence an reliance on "climate-gate!!!!" emails for example. Nothing from the emails is ever actually produced to BE refuted. Its just a vague handwave that "over there"
A real argument would produce specific passages that prove that global warming is being faked.. but thats not what you see. What you see is the image of that argument, followed by no resistance to the counter argument, followed by the argument still being their untouched and unchanged by the reality passing through it.
Trying to get better about that. But I will say that i would rather have a fight come up 10 times on the internet than once at the table. I'm very glad that I ran into certain schools of dming here so that I wasn't completely blindsided by it at the table.
> Situational. If it was something where the GM had legitimate emotional triggers (devout christian GM and demonologist PC for example. I have known some people who are fine with GM run demons, even if they are the ones running them, but who legitimately get squicked if the PCs are doing the summoning.) I could see an event organizer needing to make some concessions to everyone's mental health and asking you to play another character.
Yeah.. no. PFS is not generally set up to handle that kind of thing for public games without having a really big group.
It was until someone came back from the future to tell us that was a bad idea.
AHHHHHH DIAMONDS! OW OW OW OW OW OW
At the park where i worked at we had a prison detail. They basically had the same job we did for about 4 hours, then went and hung out at their camp out in the park, hung out, worked out.
They didn't have to work in the rain
I often had to ask for a reminder why I couldn't just toss a supervisor through a woodchipper , be convicted, and have it be a move up for me.
A couple of times we were working in a section of the park with a lot of rattlesnakes around. While I don't do it with rattlesnakes, they'd seen me gently pick up very large black rat snakes and put them on my shoulders to move them out of the work area. So I get elected to check the area for snakes.
Walk around back and forth, covering the whole area.
This happens multiple times.
"What the hell....Do you tell them to do that?
"....you have a pair of sevens.
"...but you role play! What the...
And the deniers inability to cite information that supports their arguments, explain the specifics of their complaints, or articulate any sane motivation for this world wide hoax puts their cause through the woodchipper.
There is no rational reason to believe you.
Can someone say something on par with JonGarrett story to divert the thread from the bicycle/car trashing. Or at least give us some other kind of road rage examples unrelated to bicycle/car road war?
In college I was crossing at a corner. Someone in a BMW bumped me, not hard enough to knock me over, but it was more than a tap.
I put a nice dent in in the hood of his car with an OG SMASH punch
Gets out of car "YOU SMASHED MY #()$)#($ing car" pause.
Pause Pause. Pause. Looks at hood
"You smashed my car"
Gets back in car in a hurry.
I wondered where that went....
Hey! I am not a herd dog.
RE motivations for the society. There was a thread a while back called Maslow's pathfinders and.. having the society as your number one goal was actually a pretty rare thing.
Doh! my bad.
A wizard did it.
BAZZZZT.. Ow! quit it. Bzzzzt Ow! Quit it.
The idea that its all socialism or all capitalism is silly.
The idea that coal plants are all capitalism and alternative sources would be all socialism is just wrong. Linky
Coal plants (like any large business really) ALREADY get tax breaks and direct funding. Not to mention the socialization of the impact on air quality and peoples health that they don't have to pay for. If we treated solar and wind the same way we'd be throwing buckets of cash at them.
I mean seriously, what great undertaking has our nation ever done without some form of government help? The eerie canal? Rail roads? Power plants, sports stadiums, nuclear power plants,

Its easier than you'd think. Keep in mind the world these people live in. Someone can go ickity ackity ook and chuck a 30 foot sphere of fire out of their hands and leave the laws of conservation of energy crying in the corner. A prayer could very easy just be a disguised spell.
It doesn't help that the gods don't have exclusive access to anything really. The singer at the inn can heal you up after a bar fight, the crazy blind guy in the market can get rid of your diseases, and the tree hugger is even better at imploring a ficus to get rid of poison.

That said, I'm also annoyed when someone coming the other way with the right of way at a four way stop, comes to a complete stop and waits a bit to be sure I'm stopping, because it wastes my time.
Your other option is assuming that every other driver on the road is you.
And not the person that ran the stop sign and crashed into them when they first started driving.
The effect is pretty much nil, as long as you have your paper chronicle sheets. If those get lost, AND someone audits them THEN you might have a problem.
I'd start with giving the DM a poke and seeing what happens from there. In all likelyhood his auto complete is filling you in when he fills out sessions or he has your number next to another players name in his logbook or something.

It wouldn't matter one whit. You can make all the impossibly high standards for studies you want. When those studies say something people don't like you'll still get the exact same amount of grarg and counter factual arguments that make up the vast majority of denier claims.
The idea that the key to winning this is better evidence has worse than no evidence.
Yes. PFS is a little hard on low level casters.
This is one of the reason that its usually choc full of melee.
You will probably have 4 "the scenario plans combat" encounters. You never know when the party is going to turn the tea service into a mosh pit or have a character belly rub a colossal ooze into submission instead of hurting it.
Cross bow may not be a bad idea for a few levels. Most people have played casters. They understand.
Odin took him. Providing care... maybe.
Arsenic is a healthy snack, pure and simple.
You can defy gravity with a superman cape, pure and simple.
Pepsi is the best cola, pure and simple.
Adding the words "pure and simple" to a statement increases its truthiness. It does not make an argument for them.
The overall "fact" that the global temperature has actually cooled by a fraction of a degree (Celsius? or Farinhiets?) seems to be either ignored or discounted.
Or is something else you've made up. Citation please.
The Email controversy has poked a serious hole in any discussion about "Man Made" climates and put the issue further into a joke status.
The only thing that has reached joke status is this argument.
Point to something in the emails that actually does this. You cannot just angrily hand wave at "Climate gate!" and say that it shows that Anthropogenic Climate Change is a hoax because people, comedians at that, have angrily said that Anthropogenic Climate Change is a joke.
Hurricane Katrina changed a lot of the weather pattern ten years ago, warping the Jet Stream as it made New Orleans into a giant swimming pool. Anyone forget that the tragedy could have been lessened if the levies would have been built to spec to be able to divert water around the city? Those were not built because it would have impacted some tree frog or cricket or something, so it was made into a worse situation because of the very same type of folks that wring their hands and pout about "global Warming" and how man is causing it.
Citation needed. The levies suffered from poor construction and lack of funding. What you're talking about sounds awfully expensive.
I am not small norse wolf.
I am trying to be not quite so large norse wolf. Took a walk on the local bridge, like I do every once in a while. Muscles felt a little weak today for some reason, so i was making more stops than usual.
walk walk walk. Lean on railing to rest. Walk walk walk lean on railing to rest.
police called because people think I'm going to jump despite that...
A) Pretty obvious the I needed a break after a few miles. Honestly looking at me you'd wonder how I got out that far.
B) No way I'm getting over that railing.....
Go into a persons house and take someones stuff you're a thief.
Get a whole bunch of people together, put on the same uniforms and some badges, march into the neighboring country kill them and take their stuff and you're a proud warrior of your tribe/city state/country.
Lawful people are weird.
